Campuses closed 27 April for Staff Day


All Ara campuses will close for the annual Staff Day professional development event on Wednesday 27 April. This is our one opportunity during the year to bring all of our staff together to increase understanding of the path ahead for our institute and generate ideas about working more effectively across the region.

Therefore, all campuses are affected:

  • City Campus Christchurch
  • Woolston Campus Christchurch
  • Timaru Campus
  • Bank St Campus, Timaru
  • Ashburton Campus
  • Oamaru campus
  • Washdyke Campus
  • Campus Connect Hubs (New Brighton, Bishopdale, Hornby and Rangiora)

All services (for example Library, Recreation Centre and Admissions & Enrolments) will be closed. Please plan accordingly.

A small number of classes have been timetabled for the day and these classes will be notified by their tutor. Please check with your tutor if you are not sure.

Access to campuses will be the same as for regular after-hours access.
